Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) superstar, Lionel Messi has admitted that he will play his last World Cup in Qatar.
Newsbreak.ng reports that according to the Argentine, he is already ‘counting down the days’.
“Is it my last World Cup? Yes, surely yes, surely yes,” Messi, 35, told Star+. “I am counting down the days to the World Cup. There is a bit of anxiety and nerves at the same time. Wanting it to be now and the nerves that were are already there, what is going to happen.
“It’s the last one, how are we going to do.
“Yes, on the one hand, we can’t wait for it to arrive and on the other hand, we’re scared of wanting it to go well.”
